"What's Mine Is Yours" as written by and Corin Lisa Tucker Carrie Rachel Brownstein....
Sit down, honey, let's kill some time
Rest your head on this heart of mine
Tell me, honey, cause you look so blue
Just how did they get to you?
Cause I've been sold a
Waste of time
I'm gonna spend it
Yours and mine

Someone's in the kitchen
Cooking herats over the stove
Don't lie to me, never say goodbye to me
I don't want to be here alone
Someone's at the front door
Selling Band-Aids for our sores
You can bleed it, as long as they don't see it
I'm not going to be ignored

Come on darling, let's hang around
Let's wreck their precious, their perfect town
If it's all a dirty shame,
I'm gonna do it night and day

Someone's in the kitchen
Cooking herats over the stove
Don't lie to me, never say goodbye to me
I don't want to be here alone
Someone's at the front door
Selling Band-Aids for our sores
You can bleed it, as long as they don't see it
I'm not going to be ignored

Did you ever get the feeling
That you don't belong
Said the teacher in the classroom
I thing there's something wrong
But your desks are too heavy
And your walls are too white
Your rules are all wrong
And it's either run of fight
But I'm still running
I'm still running

Sit down, honey, let's kill some time
Rest your head on this heart of mine
Come on darling, let's hang around
Let's wreck their precious, their perfect town
If it's all a waste of time
I'm gonna spend it
What's yours and mine

    General Commenti don't know if this is what s-k was going for when they wrote it, but for me it seems to be about being gay in a small town. it's obviously a couple, but everyone seems to be against them. "tell me honey, cuz you look so blue. just how did they, did they get to you?" and also the line "did you ever get the feeling that you don't belong?" but the line that really drew that to my attention was the "come on darling, let's hang around. let's wreck their precious, their perfect town" it's talking about running away from something (persecution?) but then it ends sorta saying, let's hang around and face it cuz we're in this together. "and it's either run or fight"
    i think that calling it a "dirty shame" or a "waste of time" is what other people say and in the end she's just sort of like fuck you, i'm going to do it anyways
    just my thoughts... if that's not it, i have no idea.

    General CommentYeah, and "you can bleed it as long as they don't see it" is "I don't mind gay people as long as they don't flaunt it." I think it. I love this song.

    General Commentreally one of their best songs, but I don't like the break with the guitar.

    General Commentneither do I really. I dunno, I'm used to it and I guess it's kind of an appropriate place to have a break because "do you ever get the feeling" sounds different from the rest of the song. But it sounds kind of lame.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's "cooking hearts over the stove," not "herats," even though that's how she sings it

    General CommentI think the herats is just a typo.
    Even though I've posted like a zillion times I have to come back and say I love the guitar towards the beginning. (Tell me honey...dur dur dur dur...'cause you look so blue...dur dur dur dur dur dur...) It makes me incredibly happy for some reason.
